Oudtshoorn Visitor Information

Travelling Time
Winter is the best time to visit this town in the Klein Karoo, because here it gets very hot in summer.

Ostrich Show Farms
Besides the two oldest ostrich farms Highgate and Safari, which are for many years entertaining hundreds of people every day with shows and informations about ostriches, some new show farms have opened now: Buffelsdrift Ostrich Farm and Cango Ostrich Farm. It is difficult to choose between them, since all of them offer good shows of about 90 minutes length, lots of information, a curio shop and a restaurant.
